Use the Get-AppInstance cmdlet to get a collection of app instances that are installed on an SPWeb object.

SharePoint Management Shell


Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the App instance for which to find metadata.




Sets the query scope to a site.

Subsites are not included.




Specifies the App. This parameter returns metadata for all instances of an app.




Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.

-----------EXAMPLE 1-----------

$instances = Get-SPAppInstance -Web http://localhost

This example returns a collection if more than one app is installed on http://localhost. If only one app is installed, a single object is returned.

-----------EXAMPLE 2-----------

$instance = Get-SPAppInstance -AppInstanceId $instance.Id

This example returns the ID of an instance of an app.
